VISHWA Hindu Parishad has demanded immediate ban on the Changai Sabhas of Canadian evangelist Peter Youngren being held in Allahabad. In a statement issued from Allahabad VHP patron Shri Ashok Singhal said Peter Youngren was banned from entering India during the NDA regime for conducting such farcical events. But this person has been granted permission by Sonia-led Congress regime. He hold programmes aimed at encouraging conversions into Christianity, Shri Singhal emphasised.“The most important point is that the visa of Youngren is just a conference visa under which he can only participate in programmes of Government institutions by prior permission of the Ministry of External Affairs and the Ministry of Home Affairs of the Government of Bharat. But defying all laws his programmes are being organised independently and illegally. The laws of Bharat have not permitted him to convert people through the farcical ‘Changai Sabhas’. The Missionary Visa has been banned in Bharat since 1969. But it is being openly flouted by Soniaji’s regime,” Shri Singhal said in the statement.
“In Allahabad pressures and protests were mounted by democratic processes through courts of law and administrative machinery against this illegal activity of Youngren. But the dance of cruelty the Government showed against the peaceful democratic protesters brings to mind the oppressive strategies the British Raj adopted against the patriots of the country. The holistic, altruistic and syncretic 'Rishi-Krishi' culture that has been cultivated and developed for thousands of years in Bharat is now under attacks through ‘Changai programmes’ from the forces of conversion under government patronage to slaughter it. There was a long span of several centuries when the jihadis took upon themselves to destroy and uproot our temples and the dharma-based traditions to replace it by their jihad-based desert tradition. But today the whole of Bharat is ready to counter such forces for the cause of protection of Dharma and Culture of Bharat and it is evident from the protests held by over 10,000 young people in Allahabad against the illegal activities of Youngren,” Shri Singhal added.
